Scatter plot examples


Working in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software you can always make any needed charts, such as, for example, a scatter one, which is known to be one of the seven basic tools within the so called “quality control”.

The mentioned scatter chart can be also known as “scatter plot”. Other names for it are “scatter graph”, “scattergram” and “scatter diagram”. It is simply one of the types of plot diagram, also known as “mathematical diagram”. Scatter plot is different from any line graph because of using the so called “Cartesian coordinates”. The mentioned coordinates are used for displaying the values for two variables. In case the points are colour-coded, the one of the additional variables can be easily displayed. The data itself is displayed within such scatter charts as a collection of points. Each of the points has the value of one variable. Such variable determines the position on the horizontal axis as well as the value of the other variable, which determines the position on the vertical axis.

Any scatter plot can be simply used when both of the continuous variables are simply independent. If a certain parameter exists, being systematically incremented or/and decremented by the other, then it’s called as the “control parameter”. Another name for it can be an “independent variable”. It is usually plotted along the horizontal axis on the graph. The dependent or so called “measured variable” is usually plotted along the vertical axis on the scatter graph, so if there are no dependent variable exists, then another type of variable can be plotted on axis. In this case, a scatter plot will represent only the degree of correlation between two variables.

Lots of kinds of correlations can be applied within any scatter plot. These correlations are known to be mentioned between variables, having a certain confidence interval, which in statistics can be explained as a type of interval estimate of a population parameter, computed from the observed data.

For a linear correlation, the best-fit procedure is known to be called as a “linear regression”. It is guaranteed to be able to generate a correct solution in a certain finite time. There are no universal best-fit procedures which can be guaranteed for generating a correct solution for the arbitrary relationship within any scatter plot, but it is still very useful in case it’s needed to see the way how two comparable data sets agree to show the so called non-linear relationships between the variables. It is always possible to do it by simply adding a smooth line. An example of such “smooth line” can be “LOESS,” or simply “locally weighted scatter plot smoothing”, used in the regression analysis, being simply one of the non-parametric regression methods, used for combining the multiple regression models in a so called “k-nearest-neighbour-based” meta-model. It is also quite important to mention, that once some the data is represented by a mixture model of a few simple relationships, then these mentioned relationships will be visually evident as the “superimposed patterns”.

The Cartesian coordinates are widely used for displaying different values for a set of data illustrated with help of scatter chart. Such Cartesian coordinate system is a coordinate one, specifying each point uniquely in a plane by a pair of the numerical coordinates. The mentioned numerical coordinates are known to be the signed distances to the point from two perpendicular directed lines, being fixed and measured in the very same unit of length. Each of the reference lines is known to be called as a “coordinate axis” of the system. The point where two lines meet is called the “origin”. The mentioned coordinates are basically the positions of the perpendicular projections of the point on the two mentioned axes.

Everyone can use the same principle for specifying the position of any point in three-dimensional space by three different Cartesian coordinates, signing distances to the mutually perpendicular planes. Thus, n Cartesian coordinates are known to be specifying the point in a so called “n-dimensional Euclidean space” within any n dimension. The mentioned coordinates are equal to distances from the point to n mutually perpendicular hyperplanes, being very widely used for many different diagrams and charts.

Making the described chart, you will find it very useful to have the Line Graphs solution, available in the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software. Having the mentioned solution will enable you making it possible to draw the great looking charts, having all the needed tools for that, such as the pre-made examples of the charts, including the scatter ones. Thus, having all the previously created templates of the scatter charts can make it much simpler for you to make your own smart looking ones, as having the professionally made graphs can enable you to edit them the way you want to see the final result and so to get it much sooner than if you started to draw your own chart from a scratch.

Scatter Chart Examples *

Example 1. Scatter chart example — Number of inhabitants of Vienna

Being of the seven basic tools of quality control, along with cause-and-effect diagram (or "fishbone", or “Ishikawa” one), check sheet, control chart, histogram, Pareto chart and run chart, the scatter one is very widely used and it can be created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and drawing software as well as other diagrams, charts, maps, flowcharts and many other schematics. Having the Line Graphs solution will simplify your work with drawing the needed graph, including the scatter one, so you can use it for your business documentation, for your site or for other reasons, such as while making presentations mentioning the data you want to explain about in a way of a diagram, a scatter one.

Workflow Diagram Template →

Starting producing workflow diagram from template you save time and avoid the blank page syndrome. At first, the workflow template is set of rules for a workflow. The workflow symbols used in the specific case are part of workflow template. This is the subset of large standard collections of workflow symbols. The first part of workflow template is identification of symbols allowed in use in your specific case. The best way would be to collect them in your customized drawing collection of workflow symbols which used in your specific cases of workflow diagrams. Another way to create business process documents is using business process flow diagram which have similar purposes and have different visual notation. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM is professional workflow diagram software with the rich extentions from ConceptDraw Solution Park. The basic solution for workflow diagramming is Workflow Diagrams Solution. It delivers a rich set of workflow diagram templates and samples help you draw diagrams eWorkflow Diagram Template *

Working with personnel might be difficult if you are not prepared enough. To explain your workers all the details of communication with customers, you can draw an order process flowchart which will describe every step of the process and answer all the questions that might appear. You can view a lot of business process mapping diagram examples here, in ConceptDraw Solution Park. This business process flow chart is created to illustrate the sample work order process. Before an organization can make some work for a person, the customer work order request must be completed. It is needed for tracking and accountability objectives. We used this business process flowchart to show a certain tasks and actions assumed by an organization. This flowchart depicts the outside inputs that are needed to launch a process, and ways the organization delivers its outputs. This business process flowchart was created with a help of ConceptDraw Business Process Mapping solution.Work Order Process Flowchart. <br>Business Process Mapping Examples *

A layout is a way that furniture is arranged in some place. It’s not difficult to develop a store layout using software with tons of templates and libraries with vector shapes of furniture, doors, walls etc. Create a plan in five minutes and have more time to implement it. Designing the floor plan for a new store is very important step for a small business. Well thought out and well-done floor plan is the foundation of the store layout. It should provide a basis through which to make out and organize everything else. Sometimes a small stores have a small floor space, so well thought out arrangement of furniture and commercial equipment is crucial to the success of the business. By using the ConceptDraw Floor Plans solution you can make a floor plan for your store quickly and effortlessly.Store Layout Software *
